...a country (Hungary) whose population, even today, is barely over ten million has produced so many musicians and so much outstanding music. I am grateful for having been born and trained there.

Students of the Liszt Academy have the opportunity to showcase their own talents in the neo-Classical opera by Bohuslav Martinů composed in 1953–54. The composer also wrote the libretto after the popular stage work by Carlo Goldoni. The comedy provides a detailed image of 18th century social transformations: the inn keeper playing the title role is a member of the rising bourgeoisie, independent and confident, literature’s first feminist, whom everyone falls in love with as the plot progresses; of her two suitors, one is a caricature of fallen nobility, the other a nobleman who has bought his rank with cash; the third male character is a misogynist (at least this is what he appears until Mirandolina teaches him a lesson); the fourth is a child of the people, who wins the hand of his lady through sincerity of character.
